.DISCUSSION...
...HIGH PRESSURE AND OFFSHORE FLOW WILL PROVIDE FOR
ABOVE AVERAGE TEMPERATURES AND MARGINAL HUMIDITY RECOVERY ON THE
MID SLOPES AND RIDGES THROUGH MID WEEK. THE ATMOSPHERE WILL BE
STABLE WITH A STRONG SURFACE INVERSION THROUGH THE NIGHT AND
MORNING WITH LOW MIXING HEIGHTS THROUGH THE DAY. EAST WINDS WILL
BE GUSTY OVER THE CASCADES. CONFIDENCE IS MODERATE THAT THE RIDGE
WILL WEAKEN DURING THE SECOND HALF OF THE WEEK ALLOWING A SERIES OF
PACIFIC FRONTS TO MOVE INLAND...
